I think that French is a beautiful language and many of the world’s best romantic and exotic words are French. To my ear, I have found a word that really stands out!
Now doesn’t that have a nice ring to it! Sapeurs-Pompiers.
Of course it means the fire brigade, but it is such a great looking and sounding word isn’t it. Just the spelling conjures up an image of something brave and important. It sounds very impressive and rolls off the tongue nicely.
I keep looking for the Sapeurs-Pompiers everywhere I go. I even found one of their boats on the River Seine today
